Not to be confused with blues singer, Bobo Jenkins, or middleweight boxing champ, Carl 'Bobo' Olson, this obscure 45 tells a short story of the man known only as Bobo, a "most famous unknown"...
An accomplished musician and rumored silent music mogul, Bobo was at the top of mid 50s "bohemian cool". He mixed with the social elite as well as the working classes, and yet his true identity is still unknown today, as it was then, to the many musicians and music lovers who mingled with him at the time.
Al 'Dr. Horse' Pittman sums up Bobo perfectly with his Fire label 45 from 1962.

Lou Allen Rawls 1933 - 2006
If there's any one artist or singer one could call "Cool", Lou Rawls was it.
Lou was really a jazz singer with crossover appeal, but he really had a lot of soul. A top 20 hit in 1971, this MGM label 45 is still around and easy to find.
Don't like all his recordings, but he hits it perfectly here.
